About the Marina


This vibrant and
Victorian seaside town of Brighton boasts the largest cosmopolitan marina in the UK. The marina accommodates 1600 fully serviced pontoon berths plus dedicated berthing for visitors. This 24 hour access marina literally projects out in to the sea, seeking its protection from huge concrete blocks. Brighton pulls in 8 million visitors each year and to some extent the marina is responsible for this huge growth in tourism and leisure. The marina promenade has a lively mix of bars and restaurants, whilst set back from the marina’s waterfront are yet more bars and restaurants, shops, superstores, cinemas, a hotel, a sports leisure complex, a casino and a bowling alley. Brighton’s town centre is a short walk from the marina where you’ll find the world famous Lanes - a network of winding alleys and a cosmopolitan cocktail of over 300 cafes, bars and designer label shops.
 

Marina Approaches


The entrance into the marina is remarkably straightforward without any off-lying hazards. However, in moderate S to SE winds the entrance can be surprisingly bumpy, even becoming inadvisable if the wind should become severe. In heavy weather, yachts are advised to make their approach from due south to avoid the backwash from the breakwaters. At night, the breakwater lights can be lost in the dazzle of the Brighton night life, however new high-intensity lamps have been recently fitted to the sector lights.
